But... He loves you.

Not a bad look back at four comedic geniuses, every one of them deserving. There are at least a dozen, or more, comedians that are deserving, this is simply four of them. The whole premise is difficult in this era, as nearly everything shown in the clips of those honored is available at the push of a button. Still, the event is put together pretty well, the edit of the clips was fine, though parts of Pryors seemed a bit disparaging and uneeded. The presenters were ok, hit and miss all of them, but they were given an impossible task. I enjoyed the event and look forward to seeing it again.

Props to Jeff Ross, his memorial segment was absolutely fantastic, just really spectacular, even if the crowd didn't seem to get some of it.

Great Comedians Honoring The Great Comedians

This induction is really special for several reasons: I'm glad that Jon Stewart got to talk Carlin because that is always a joy to witness- I'm glad John Mulaney promoted and encouraged the same love and happiness that Robin Williams' comedy was wrought with- Chelsea Handler speaking truth and not making me roll my eyes was new for me and I enjoyed it very much, and I have never been happier to see Chappelle on stage surmising a man of true importance. If you love comedy and the history of comedy like I do, this is a treat. If you love seeing honest people lay down their pride in honor of the great figures that paved the way, then this is it. If you love Pete Davidson, well then maybe you'll like this special even more than I did.

Get a bigger hall

OK. I understand. The first of anything can be a chore and it probably takes some time to get it right. IMO they did get the 4 people honored right. Certainly they belong and it seems socially correct to have a Black and a Woman among the choices, though they are obvious choices. I also liked the tribute to the recently passed away. What disappointed me was the presenters and also their tributes. I was also disappointed not to see more family members there. FWIW - George Carlin, of course, but there would be no Carlin without Lenny Bruce. I know he wasn't very funny at the end of his career when the authorities had crushed him and he started reading transcripts. But recall his early work and it's hard to exclude him from a list of the greatest.
